About me/Director

Associate Professor Lucija Mulej was awarded the PhD in 2006 and was elected Assistant Professor in 2009. The beginning of her professional career was marked by her engagement at several Slovenian universities: her first post was at the Faculty of Social Sciences where she taught Research methodology in social sciences, Sociology of gender, Development of sociological theories, Anthropology and Sociology.

During her MA and PhD studies she travelled a lot: she is interested in anthropological fieldwork and leaves for Brazil (2003), Australia (2005) and Thailand (2006).

She gained invaluable philanthropic experience in the Movement for Justice and Development (Gibanje za pravičnost in razvoj) led by dr.

Since 2008 she's been intensively involved with family businesses to whom she organizes lectures on various topics (negotiation, motivation, art of persuasion and influence) and personal trainings for directors and sector managers. The basic principle in company cooperation is the input of spiritual capital and understanding the meaning of social and personal capital for a healthy structure of material capital and its growth; MOLGA and BUDNJANI now have over 2000 references and long-term clients.
